Understanding Human History, again

Having mentioned Michael Hart’s 2007 book Understanding Human History several times recently in the context of discussions about human racial differentiation, I went back and re-read its chapters on the expansion of Homo sapiens out of Africa (though I’ve recently become aware, to my surprise, that some reputable scientists are still questioning the out-of-Africa theory), and also re-read my long review of the book from September-October 2007. In the review, I discuss what I like about Mr. Hart’s book, and I also engage with him on various points where I disagree, which is what a reviewer ought to do. I recommend my article, as well as, of course, the book itself. Here are Amazon reader reviews (with various eminent names among the reviewers), and here is a website where you can purchase the book or download a free pdf version of it.
